IT’S been two years since Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in a fairytale ceremony in Windsor – but Prince William, Kate Middleton and The Queen notably didn’t acknowledge the special occasion on their social media accounts yesterday.
Last year, the Royal Family‘s Instagram account paid tribute to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their first anniversary with a sweet photo of the couple kissing on the steps of St George’s Chapel after exchanging their vows.

On the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s second wedding anniversary, The Queen shared two posts – but neither of them mentioned the couple.
The first was a tribute to the Chelsea Flower Show which is happening virtually this year and showed The Queen‘s favourite flower lily of the valley in bloom in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
Meanwhile, the second Instagram post marked what should have been Her Majesty’s second Buckingham Palace Garden Party of the season.
Instead, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s posts have focussed on Mental Health Awareness Week and the Duchess’ 2019 Chelsea Flower Show entry which is being shared virtually.
Although the Royal Family did not publicly acknowledge Harry and Meghan’s anniversary, it is unknown if they were in touch with the couple privately.
Writing for Harper’s Bazaar, Royal editor Omid Scobie – who is the co-author of the upcoming biography Finding Freedom – claims the couple marked the day by spending “quality time” with their one-year-old son Archie.
Speaking ahead of the couple’s anniversary, the source said: “They’re not going to be doing any work and made sure they have no meetings or calls in the diary.

“Like everyone else, they are in lockdown at the moment, so they will just be hanging out together at home. But it will still be a lovely day.”
To mark their second anniversary, Meghan and Harry have helped to provide 250,000 meals for struggling Brits during lockdown with their £90,000 wedding donation.
The Sussexes pledged the money raised from their royal wedding TV broadcast to help the Feeding Britain charity.
